In addition to fire pits, garden ponds can bring your outdoor space to a whole new level. Adding one in your garden is a great way to encourage more wildlife into your backyard.
You can provide an ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife, including frogs, fishes, and insects. Ponds are a great source of food and water, as well as a home or breeding ground for them to utilise.
If you’re planning to start a pond in your garden, here’s our curated list of ideas that you can use for your own inspiration. This guide will walk you through a bunch of beautiful designs and ideas to create a unique garden.
Let’s dive in!

Make your pond that bit more original by building it in a canoe! This is probably one of the coolest abstract pond ideas we’ve ever seen, don’t you agree?
2. Two-tier wood-framed raised pond with water feature
